Tu BiShvat Rotary!

I really should give more Rotary updates! I do a lot with the club here in Beer Sheva, but I usually get home late and I am tired!!!

Tonight they had a Tu BiShvat party (it's a holiday for the arrival of spring and trees, etc. I'm sure there is a MUCH better definition somewhere and some very religious significance, I just don't know what it is!) There was singing and two stand-up guys. Even though I didn't understand a lot of the Hebrew, it was still very funny! There was lots of food too! Fruits and cakes and dried fruit!! Yum yum!

YAY Rotary!! =)

iPhone pictures

This looks kind of gross in the picture, but it's granola, strawberries, banana and yogurt! Roi made it for me when we were studying and it was delicious!!

Roi studying...

Still studying....

I bought Roi "Princess Pasta" and we ate it! You can see the castle in this picture...there was also a carriage, a flower, and of course, Cinderella, Snow White, and Ariel!!

Now..back to writing more papers!!

I have been sick since Sinan has left, and trying to write papers, which isn't going anywhere because I just keep sleeping, but I felt a little better today, so hopefully I'll be able to concentrate now and pump out one more 15 pager!!!

First date. =)

Although this may sound funny, Roi and I had our first date yesterday. Let me explain, we have been together for a while now, almost 4 months now? But we somewhat skipped dating and started hanging out all the time. It was just like we were best friends from the start and it didn't really matter what we were doing as long as we got to do it together. We would go to a friend's house together, or he would make me dinner, or we would study together, but yesterday, we went to see Avatar, just the two of us, so really, it was our first date. It was wonderful of course, like everything we do together and nice because neither one of us was nervous like you might be on a first date. Hopefully it won't be 4 months until our next date. =)

Dome of the Rock

The night before going to Dome of the Rock, Sinan and I had dinner with Yishai, he also took Sinan to the Western Wall. He is a great tour guide!! It was a really fun night with two of my favorite boys. =)

I finally made it!

But I wasn't allowed to go in!

But Sinan was allowed!!

For Katie

When we were little Katie and I played this game a lot. It's really difficult.

Katie loves these books!

And this one too...

My sister is great, whenever little kids have birthdays or celebrations, she always buys them books! She really is a teacher in all aspects of her life!! I love her and I love when things remind me of her, like these!!

Jerusalem - again =)

Beautiful - Dome of the Rock

Men's side of the wall at night.

There was going to be an induction ceremony for new soldiers at the wall...they get a gun and a Bible. I really don't like that...bad combination. =(

Soldiers waiting!! It was cold!
